The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.
After all, I've been damn curious about a few things I've read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy's shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.
Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.
All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.
He's also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off..
Customer ReviewsSee All
I absolutely loved this book!
I absolutely LOVED this friends-to-lovers look at how romance scenes are played out in novels!!
Do buttons really ping, ping, ping everywhere when shirts are ripped open?
Is tub sex really possible?
Can you really rip panties off with your teeth?
Peyton and Triston take to the task of answering these questions and more, but they do so with trepidation at first, because hey, they are friends, but the steam they generate....WOW....there is definitely something more there.
This story is so delightful, I'm having a really hard time picking my favorite book boyfriend lately...IKR...soooo hard...Tristan is scrumptious, sweet, and amazing and boy does he bring the lusty steam.
They brought the chemistry and built up the "we really shouldn't" until the tea kettle was absolutely screaming.
This is a perfect combo to go with Amy and Linc's story, but also can be read as a complete standalone too.
Definitely One to Read
Peyton and Tristan are great friends, so who better to ask help her try out sexy times scenarios for her blog than the man she trusts most? Yes, there was that unforgettable kiss in college. Yes, he’s an extremely attractive guy with whom she always has a great time. But they’re friends first and foremost and she couldn’t bear to lose their friendship. Too bad their hearts, and other body parts, want more.
Love these Characters
Can I just say up front that I love Peyton & Tristan, the main characters in this Friends to Lovers story?? This is the second book in Lauren’s new Boyfriend Material series, but it’s a standalone with a happily ever after. You’ll just recognize a few other characters if you’ve read some of Lauren’s previous books. The really “fun” part of this book is the set-up of how these two get from point A to point B. Peyton is writing a companion piece to a romance novel...charged with “testing out” some of those standard sexy scenarios. Can you really rip buttons off a shirt? How about taking off your lovers clothes while heading up the stairs? And just how realistic is sex in the bath tub? Who better than one of her best friends to try these scenes with...strictly platonically. I think we all know how that’s going to work out, but it’s a hilarious and fun read to get these two to where we all want them to be. Another winner!
